Up for auction is this immaculate 2008 Porsche 997 GT2 finished in Carrara White over a black full leather interior with yellow deviated stitching, Alcantara, and carbon-fiber trim. Originally designed to meet racing homologation requirements, Porsche’s rear-wheel-drive, turbocharged GT2 cars are among the rarest and most sought after 911’s ever built. This 997 example is equipped with a legendary twin-turbocharged 3.6L flat-six Mezger capable of sending 530 HP to the rear wheels through a visceral 6-speed manual transmission. With only 937 miles displayed on the odometer, this collector-grade 2008 GT2 is now being offered by its private seller in California accompanied by the original books, tools, window sticker, and a clean title.
The Carrara White finish is reported to be like-new (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). Based on the 997 Turbo, the GT2 features the same wide bodyshell but with a unique front fascia, a redesigned rear wing, and a revised rear bumper with outlet vents. Factory options include a painted rear model designation and painted headlight washer covers. This example retains its factory silver-painted wheels that remain dressed in their original Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.
Inside, this GT2 showcases a beautifully configured black full leather interior with Alcantara upholstery, yellow deviated stitching, and the carbon package. Other exclusive features include a carbon fiber multifunction steering wheel, Porsche crested headrests for the carbon-fiber bucket seats, a storage compartment lid with model logo, and illuminated doorsill guards in carbon fiber. The original $200,640 window sticker also includes the Bose Surround Sound System and Sport Chrono Package.
This GT2 carries a 3.6 L flat-six Mezger engine with twin variable-geometry turbochargers making for an output of 530 HP and 505 lb.-ft of torque. Equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission sending power to the rear wheels, this GT2 represented the fastest road-going 911 ever at the time of its debut, capable of accelerating from 0-60 MPH in as little as 3.3 seconds while reaching a top speed of over 200 MPH. Performance features include Porsche ceramic composite brakes (PCCB), the Sport Chrono Package, electronically adjustable shock absorbers, and a lightweight titanium exhaust. Routine service has been carried out to maintain excellent running order and this GT2 remains in exemplary condition for its next owner.
This sale will be accompanied by a set of 2 keys, the original books, tools, and window sticker, service records, and a clean title. Less than 1k miles from new, this absolutely pristine 997 GT2 makes the perfect addition to any high-end automotive collection or museum.
